Were you referring to implants? I think they generally cost anywhere from $1,000 - 3,000 (I did write $2,000 - 3,000 before but you're right, it can be done for less money) depending on the location (hospital vs. private practice), the crown itself and if you need extractions as well (which I did). Additionally, insurance may cover part of the cost, but as for the actual implant work itself, I don't think they do.
Looking back now, I regret not having a 'hockey picture' taken while missing my three teeth. And they say my implants are stronger then real teeth!
